I stayed here with my family in April 2013, the rooms were not that big and average.But the price is ok for what you get. But what stands out is the location, Howard Johnson is close by the " Emma brigde" that you cross over to get to Punda. Punda is great for shopping and dining.

My first impression of the hotel was a good one, reception was excellent, got wifi password and was quite contented.... that was until I was directed to my room... I had to exit the hotel lobby-that is to walk back outside- in order to access stairs/elevator. I was a bit terrified because it was my first time at this hotel... More

The reception at the hotel was excellent. The hotel is situated in an ideal spot-heart of Town. But the worst part is that they were not cleaning the rooms until we complained, and then we realise that the sheets were not being changed so we had to report that and then they will come, that's crazy. Imagine we were there... More

Very simple hotel, with a great small restaurant with awesome food and great owners. Parking is available, but with a very limited space. Staff is very nice. Pool needs some TLC, but with all those wonderful beaches, who needs a pool???
